Secret Santa for Seniors

2021 Secret Santa for Seniors Success

In 2021 we helped over 200 seniors in Cass County receive a gift this holiday season! Over $600 worth of gift cards and $100 for Metro Senior Ride tickets were also donated by community members to share with the seniors. Out of those 200 seniors who took part in this program, almost 95% also receive Meals on Wheels. These seniors may be celebrating the holidays alone or are unable to travel to see family due to their health. Thank you to everyone who helped make this program a success!

About this Program

Every year in November, we run our Secret Santa for Seniors program. Through this program, we ask our community to help us spread a little Christmas cheer to area seniors during the holiday season! Our Secret Santa for Seniors program is designed to ensure area seniors celebrate the holiday season.

Valley Senior Services has identified seniors who are in need of a little extra holiday cheer this season. These seniors currently work with Valley Senior Services and may be celebrating the holidays alone or are unable to travel to see family due to their health. They were asked to complete a gift wish list for their holiday season, you can get a wish list by calling the Valley Senior Services Main office at 701-293-1440 or emailing 

Community members are invited and encouraged to adopt an area senior by selecting a wish list and shopping for their Christmas gifts. Gifts need to be dropped off at Valley Senior Services.
